is Seagate's 'Seashield' harmful?
I have had a few Seagate drives die after 2 years or so. All had this Seashield. So offers anti-static as well as mechanical protection, but can it make overheating? I have a couple of 10-year Seagate drives still running in an ancient overclocked system (the IDE controller would be 12% overclocked in this thing),... 8 Jun 2010 06:55

So I'm wondering if the 32GB limit is likely to really be a hard li... 31 May 2010 15:16
